I had a doctor's appointment today.
I now have a doctor. Mine. The one who originally sent me to get diagnosed with Ehlers-Danlos, instead of calling me crazy. The one who finally insisted that my tonsils need to come out, after endless doctors told me it was best to treat the tonsillitis with antibiotics for 4 years... The ONLY doctor who ever listened to me BEFORE I was diagnosed with EDS.
I finally have MY doctor back!
He's already in the process of gathering all my medical files... The ones from our old small town clinic... The ones from the walk-in place I've been going to for the last 5 years... The ones from the hospital, and neurologist... And he's going to go over everything, and hopefully prove once again that he is smarter than the average GP.
I am so happy to have a doctor who won't put me down, or brush me off again.
Didn't get to go mountain climbing this weekend either. There are a lot of forest fires in B.C. and they are blowing smoke into my city, and I can only assume it would be worse in the mountains. I was having enough problems breathing just sitting in my house that I didn't want to risk an asthma attack by going out in it. But it looks like the weather should be favorable to go this weekend.
Other than that, I really don't have much to update. Still in lots of pain. Still twitchy. Still dislocating everything for no reason... But YAY DOCTOR! *Happy Dance*
